Rated 5 out of 5Â by Contraus Great coffee
This is a great coffee that deserves higher than a 4 star rating. If I could, I'd give it a 4.5. It's just missing a little bit of flavor. But it's still a great Hazelnut coffee. The aroma is awesome. Sure, I've had better hazelnut coffee. But this is pretty good considering it's coming out of a prepackaged plastic vue cup. If you want a 5 star hazelnut coffee, go to a real barista. If you want a really good 4.5 star hazelnut that you can brew in a minute or less, go with this one. My brewing method: - 12 oz. in a travel mug - Strong brew setting - Hottest brewing tempature - 2 teaspoons pure white sugar - 1 standard white liquid creamer

To be fair, I am not generally a hazelnut fan. I don't dislike it, it's just not my favorite flavor. Perhaps if I was more enthusiastic about hazelnut in general, I'd have found more to like about this coffee. That being said, I tried the Millstone Hazelnut Cream from the grocery store and really liked it, so my displeasure with the Gloria Jeans Hazelnut isn't entirely a result of my hazelnut prejudice. I will say that it has a fantastic aroma. But the flavor is just...off. I don't know if it's artificial, bitter, chemical or what, it just wasn't pleasant for me. It wasn't undrinkable, I finished the box, but I was glad to be done with it and won't be ordering it again.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Geo Best Hazelnut brand
This is by far my husbands FAVORITE brand of hazelnut coffee for the Keurig. We have tried many others and find that it is weak in flavor and in some cases has a "chemical" taste. Gloria Jean is an aromatic, smooth tasting coffee with just the right amount of flavor without being under or over-bearing. I myself, perfer non-flavored coffee but I find myself occasionally having a Gloria Jean Hazelnut coffee and add cream only (my husband drinks it black with a bit of sweetner)and I have to admit, it is quite good. I don't know what I'd do if it were no longer available. We would be back to brewing full pots, I'm sure. Thank you Gloria Jean for the BEST hazelnut K-cup!

I associate Gloria Jean with that delicious smell that overtakes you at the mall, and it's a major brand known for their flavoured coffees, so I was expecting something special. Unfortunately, this stuff fell flat. The aroma was not at all appealing, almost burnt, and even on the smallest cup setting it was thin, watery and unpleasant. I couldn't even finish a cup. Honestly, I'm no coffee connoisseur and I wondered what on earth people meant by "thin, watery" coffee, but I suddenly understood the instant I tried this. I love hazelnuts, so I'm trying some of the other brands available and keeping my fingers crossed.
